Psychotherapy for Young People
What is Counselling for Young People?
Sometimes young people need to express their issues differently to adults. They don’t always want to or are able to find the words to communicate their issue. They can show me how they feel by communicating in another way. Children and Young people often use play/creative therapy to do this.
I provide a therapeutic space when I work with children in which there is an opportunity for anyone of any age to play, draw, use creative materials and express themselves in a safe and controlled way. With or without words.
Sandtray Therapy – Non-Talking Therapy
I often use sandtray therapy as a non-talking way to help and explore an issue.
Psychotherapy for Adults
Our well being is the most valuable gift we can give ourselves.
Communicating Feelings and Thoughts
To be able to communicate our thoughts, wishes, hopes and dreams with another person is the most precious gift we can share. When we are troubled by the pressures of daily life, decisions, changes or by our past it can help to share this with someone who cares and will spend the time with you, listening in a non-judgmental way. I can help you to explore your difficulties and find those inner resources and powers you have.
Initial Psychotherapy Session
The first session is 30-45 minutes, so we can decide if we would like to work together.
Further Therapy Sessions
It is quite usual to have 6 sessions and then you and I make a decision about the future of this, together.
Sessions are 50 minutes and happen weekly.
Please contact me for any questions regarding this process or to book an initial meeting.
I look forward to hearing from you, in the meantime take care
